democrats use the whole millionaire idea as a political ploy six months ago as steny hoyer admitted yesterday. but meanwhile some conservatives aren't crazy about boehner's decision to concede on tax rates for any income level. >> once you cross that line and say like some people it is okay for some people's taxes to go up, i think that's a mistake for the republican party. >> i don't want to raise taxes on anybody. and i didn't come here to raise taxes or increase spending. >> so last night house republican leaders were trying to assess whether they have the votes to get their plan b to the floor and get it passed on thursday. in that scenario the house would consider two amendments to the tax legislation. one would mirror a bill passed by the senate to extend the bush rates for incomes below $250,000. another amendment would raise the threshold to $1 million. boehner's plan b, the boehner plan b. house could also vote on some middle ground amendment. here's the question -- pelosi has promised to unite democrats against boehner's plan b which means boehner can only lose around 20 r

. this morning you will be hearing from members of colleagues. steny hoyer. he may not be able to stay here the entire time with us. as we know, as the president said on sunday night, we can't tolerate this anymore. these tragedies must end and to end them we must change. in congress we're blessed with the leadership of congresswoman carolyn mccarthy. she's brought to this debate her own loss in the senseless tragedy, her own experience as a healthcare professional, and her own even handedness to help make that change with legislation to help ban assault weapons. thank you, carolyn, for your leadership and for the inspiration you are to all of us. today, i'm pleased to announce that congressman mike thompson will head a new task force focused on reducing gun violence. he's a vietnam vet, a wounded vietnam vet, i might add, -- he will be working with the administration and to do so in a bipartisan way. these are the steps, some steps that we all want to take that members have expressed that we -- but we must go further. restoring the assault weapon ban, strengthening the background system to
. taking hostage the people of america. you have steny hoyer saying that republicans want to take children hostage and threatened to shoot them. this is vilifying republicans and it has been incredibly effective. in the short term, absolutely, the president is set to take advantage of this. tax increases, massive tax reductions to the military. republicans really stand and the notion is appalling about who wins, but the republicans win because the economy is going to go out yet another fiscal cliff. george w. bush is not the president. obama is the president, he is not putting forth proposals to work with republicans. he will have to take ownership of this. they need to come up with a cohesive message about real economic growth and shrinking the size of government. they don't have a message and that is going to be the big question about who wins and long-run. jon: if we go over the cliff, i mean, everyone's paycheck, just about -- come january 1, it will be shrunk because government is going to be taking a much bigger chunk out of it. that will infuriate people. are they going to be blamin
quote, smoke out republicans and steny hoyer himself mentioned that it was a ploy. so, i think they were trying to get republicans to agree to the millionaire tax increase and then see how far it will move even more. and it's politics, david. david: yeah, yeah. >> by the way the millionaire tax, only, it would basically raise money to cover eight days of government spending, but you know, david and adam, we've had the letter from nancy pelosi. do you really believe it was a ploy to smoke out the republicans? because nancy pelosi in her letter is equating millionaires to big oil, special interest and corporations. why doesn't the g.o.p. capitalize on that they really want middle class tax hikes when they're talking about raising taxes on the 250,000 plus crowd >> well, i think speaker boehner and the republicans in the house would be able to get some democrats support for the millionaire tax increase which i don't think they did enough of and they had to call off that vote as we all know on that plan. but some democrats would support something like that, but we're talking here about the l
that in a number of their proposals -- i thought steny hoyer did a great job of putting forward the proposals of the president and the specificity that the president had outlined which is about if you put it on a fwraff would be like this -- graph would be like this and then the republican's proposal's like this. it's a difficult time for the republicans, and we want to provide them with every opportunity that they can -- to save -- not only save face but to come up something which they can do reasonably which is why tim's proposal that everybody agrees with that there be a $250,000 tax cut that this be preserved for everybody. 100% of the people will receive that. not 98%. 100% of the people will received that. so why not go forward with that when we can all agree on it? here's the president's proposal. now it's so small, it's in small print because it's so detailed and so specific. there are the republican proposals. now -- >> i just want to point out i can read that. >> so that's our concern. i don't know if the other leaders wanted to -- >> i'll just mention one quick point. i think democ
. that is where the frustration and fairness lies. >> we have heard from you all this morning, and also from steny hoyer, that there needs to be some give, that you are willing to give. but where does the give come in? you talk about balance and fairness. i remember a caucus meeting on the debt ceiling. a change cpi. everybody did not go for that. the sound similar. you double down on your positions. where is the givebacks >> first of all, he start with the budget act itself, with more than a trillion dollars that has been reduced in a fairly difficult economic recession. we start there. then we say, we put a very significant down payment in, during the midst of the recession. when democrats, in general, who believe that what we ought to be doing is making enormous investments in infrastructure improvement, so we can put the country back to work. we have put the down payment on the cuts. we have not seen anything by way of job creation, which directly impacts deficit reduction, and we have said we have been willing to discuss how we further -- you heard the term and talk about 750 billion that was
week kantor and steny hoyer spoke on the house floor about the fiscal cliff and the ongoing negotiations. here is a look. fix the
to get serious. rick: so that, of course, the speaker. now, the house minority leader, steny hoyer, took to the floor just after the speaker did, and he called speaker boehner's remarks that we just listened to, quote: disappointing. he says republicans are not explaining to the american people how they want to pay for the spending cuts that they are insisting on and that speaker boehner has given the american people no confidence that their taxes will not go up on january 1st. as we all know, as we go over the cliff, all of the bush era tax cuts will expire at midnight on december 31st. so the negotiations continue, we'll keep you posted. jenna: well, right now the latest on the manhunt for suspects in a brazen murder on the streets of midtown manhattan at a time when new york is full of holiday tourists. police just releasing a mug shot of the victim who they identify as 31-year-old brandon woodard. but investigators are saying very little else about the case. wnyw's robert moses has the latest from from the scene. >> reporter: the shooting happened outside the st. thomas choir school.
, this is steny hoyer. i would very much like you to run for congress. we think you'd be an excellent member of congress. we think you'd be a great candidate for congress. we think you could win this seat. he said, well, what's mr. gephardt think about that? i said, let me turn this over to him. he echoed my comments. i didn't know leonard boswell at the time but i heard wonderful things about leonard boswell, not only about his skill as a legislator but his decency and character as a human being. not only his experiences -- but his service at home. as a farmer, as a businessman, as a public representative and as a senate leader in iowa. and i want to say that nothing that has transpired over the years that he and i served together in this body have disabused in any way the extraordinary positive things that we're told of me of leonard boswell and why i asked him to come to the congress of the united states. he's been a dear and close friend of mine every day he has served. he will remain a dear and close friend of mine until he and i pass from this earth. he is a salt of the earth human bei
